Joan Walker was the niece of sisters Sarah and Mary Walker, both Quakers - daughters of George Washington Walker and Sarah Benson Walker.Sarah Walker ran the Girls High School with Miss Poppy Clarke where Olive was a student.
Olive enjoyed her time at school and kept in touch with her headmistresses after leaving. She was influenced by the Quaker philosophy she had encountered through Sarah Walker for the rest of her life. She learnt painting from Sarah Walker's sister, Mary who had studied at the Slade School in London.
